The Music and Basketball Link
"Most of us know the sheer pleasure of watching a basketball team or listening to a jazz band that is really working well together. Both situations involve a dynamic mix of roles, exchanges of information (not to mention of the ball), a balance between rules and structures (chords and set plays), and more improvised, opportunistic – even inspired – play. And often one player – perhaps the bandleader or the point guard (but possibly a hardworking forward or deft bassist) – performs in a way that makes the work of the others look and sound better. In short, a satisfying and effective collaboration unfolds before our eyes and ears."
